Double Down Sandwich

It should come as no surprise that I’m a team player.  So yesterday I decided to take one for the home team, or Your Home Team, if you prefer.  For the sake of a blog entry and to satisfy everyone’s crazy curiosity concerning the infamous "Double Down Sandwich", I went to Kentucky Fried Chicken and ordered one.  You’ve seen the commercials and heard all the controversey surrounding this product.  According to KFC, the Double Down "features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets, two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and the Colonel’s sauce."  Seriously.  The two chicken filets act as the "bun."  And everything else is jammed in between them.  Somehow this sandwich is listed at "only" 540 calories.  There are other items on the fast-food market which have far more.  It’s huge, it’s messy, and it’s insanely hot.  It’s so hot that McDonald’s coffee was overheard calling it "dangerously hot."  And to be honest, it wasn’t that bad.  If you think about it, it’s like the crazy, unrefined uncle of Chicken Cordon Bleu.  Having said that, I doubt I will ever get another one.  So on this day I provide this public service to you.  And I took a picture.  Team player, I am.

  1. Thanks for trying this for those of us who NEVER will. I’m not sure what’s in the ‘Colonel’s Sauce’, but it’s not sweetening the deal. :)

    You’re like the ‘Marilyn’ of channel 8 now. Do you get to vouch this?!!

  2. that is so gross looking. and for anyone who doesnt know, the “colonel’s secret sauce” can be achieved by mixing mustard, relish, ketchup and mayo together. not too scientific!! i suppose they just used what was on hand and called it’s recipe “secret..”
